    Like it was supposed to look, no chrome or very little of it, nice restraint! That rig looks pretty good!

    You know, an orange FLC with a white stripe similar to the one I put on this one, with orange trim on the Great Dane would look smashing... Just sayin'!

    One of my favorites, on my list! Nice colors!

    Those are excellent kits to start with! Everything fits! And also, the trailer is 4 inches wide, just like the tractor! It"s like they're meant for each other!

    Freightliner FLC with Great Dane Reefer
    So, it's been a while since the last post, here is one I have finished not long ago. Freightliner FLC with some mild changes from the box, decals from Modeltruckin', photo etch parts like nameplates, flap weights, chicken lights and supports from KFS, drive tires from Auslowe, exhaust stand pipes from the Australian Western Star and sleeper from the FLD kit. The wheels of the Moebius trailer swtched to bigger Italeri rims and tires to better match the truck. most decals on the trailer also from Jerry Reeter. Spread axle with scratch built tool boxes, same flap weights as the freight. Color is Tamya pure white and  Duplicolor Ford dark green.

    And I thought all Reimer trucks had black front fenders! Goes to show you learn something every day... Model looks good!

    Catertroit Diesel... Or Detroipillar.

    No, the small rings don't sn the shaft pins, they have to be glued on. Just be careful for the amount of glue here, be careful. These will retain the inner wheels and by glueing the outer wheels on to the inner ones they all will rotate together. By the way put some petroleum jelly on the axle shaft before glueing to make it easier to rotate the wheels.

    Or... If you don't want your models to roll off the shelf, use a level. Just sayin.

    Too bad it ain't 1970 anymore, huh? When cars used leaded (very environmentally healthy) gas and did 16 MPG on a good day and maybe 20 going downhill. Welll, actually my dad used to drive this 69 Chevelle coupe with a 307 that did 16-20 MPG on the highway... My 97 Z28 does 25MPG highway at 70 MPH regularly. This 2016 455HP Camaro will do over 30 highway when driven in a normal manner, also if you have to hit or get hit by something solid by some real bad luck, lets see who walks away from 1969 or 2016 car. Wellcome to 2015.

    Yes I do like the 69 Camaro Z/28 RS very much, definitely the best looking car after the 67 Corvette Stingray. But they can't make cars like these anymore. The 2010-2015 Camaro, 2005-2014 Mustang and the current Challenger are the closest you're going to get. The performance cars we get today from GM-Ford-Chrysler still look better than similar ones coming out from Lexus and Nissan, Mazda and Subaru... I like most Camaros, I drive a clean 97 Z28 and I like this new one as well. You want a mean lookng, take no prisoner Porsche GT3 challenging car? The 2014-15 Z/28 is hard to beat. As far as weight goes... Anyone knows how much a big block 1969 396 (375 gross HP) Camaro SS weigh? This was NOT a 3200 pound car! Try more like 3790.

    Another thing about past metal, they rusted just by looking at them, I remember seeing a lot of Valiants, Dusters and Chargers with rust holes on the top of the front fenders... While we're at it, looking a little more closely the panel gaps were not very constant (being polite here), the paint faded within a year or 2, dash top pads cracked within 2 or 3 years, people went thru fabric seat covers way quicker than the cheapest car made in the last 10 years, you absolutely needed to tune up the car every year or it drove like junk! Should I go on?
    The "good" old past are exactly that, past and were not as perfect as some people seem to remember.

    I like the styling of the 2016 Camaro, but I still have reservations about how I see out of it, until I sit in one.

    Arnd, the only 2 stroke Detroit Diesel this line of truck got for a couple years was the 4-53, the 6V53 could surely fit but wasn`t offered in the 6500. There were no 71 or 92 series Detroits in these. Other than that, you could build it with the Caterpillar 3208, that one was available. Another available GM diesel was the 8.2 V8 and turbo, not sure they were Detroits though. Your build is coming along very well! It looks quite good!

    You detail maniac Jarda! You make us (me) look bad all the time! LOL! You are one execellent truck modeler, I can say that much. Your builds are always entertaining! Keep at it!

    But... It's not... Orange! Well, it is blue! I like that solid look you gave it. The Italeri wheels, the front bumper and the side fairings make it look just so. Nice application of the Peterbilt stripes too. I like the race wedge and how you made the stripes continue on it from the cab. Very nice build!

    So, these Volvo FH cabovers may not be geographically unique, but they sure are pretty "unique" on our roads...
